welcome back. losing weight is far from easy. and many times once unwanted pounds are lost it just so happens, they're found again. our next guest says you can lose three to seven pounds. >> back again is dr. kathleen nash. good morning to you both. >> good morning. good to see you. >> five to seven pounds, what
>> there we go. fair enough. >> either way it's amazing results that you're getting. >> yes. >> we always start off by saying you started off as a chiropractor, but you have found this amazing formula for weight loss. >> unbelievably amazing because when i tried to lose weight i was fat since i was eight. i was always told i had to starve myself and i had to work out an incredible amount to make it and every time i did it it would come right back on. and i ended up dieting to my top weight, which is that one right there, size 20 to 22, thousand 30 pounds. this is with working out. i was still at that point working out two to five times a week. i was working out then. >> it's a struggle. it's -- when you're not happy with your weight, it's all
it's like really probably every other thought i. >> when you're thinking you're doing everything you're supposed to do, you're eating the right foods, and that's what i hear from my client, i'm doing all the right things but my body won't change. it's because the metabolic damage is in the body and you don't know, it's always going to be difficult and it's always going to be temporary. and that's why 95% of us gain it back within a one year time period. >> we want to cut that down. let's talk about metabolic factors. >> the five metabolic factors, if the body is too toxin, we're eating too much but we're not getting enough nutrition from the food so the body keeps making us hungry. the longer we're at any weight we're at, we retrain the hypothalamus that the number we're sitting at is the goal weight. if the body is too acidic it's going to grave all of the crap
get away from and that makes you gain the weight back. and there are eight different hormones that are low or imbalanced, if they're not imbalanced properly you can't lose it to begin with. >> we're learning that total is an acronym. >> that took you a while. >> i saw you nodding over there while dr.as tell us about your experience. you went through her program. >> i started about six months ago, and the first 30 days i lost 30 pounds. >> no way. awesome. in a day. >> 11 pounds around my mid section, up to now i lost 70 pounds. >> wow. >> look at that. oh, my gosh. >> no kidding, legit. >> look at you in that gym getting it done. oh, that's so exciting. >> how long were you trying to get rid of all that fat beforehand? >> years.
like dr. nash said, i'm in the gym five, six days a week and nothing changes. >> and people say it's calories in, calories out. and it's not always that. >> no, it's not. >> what's been the key for you? >> the program. >> okay. so a combination of the five factors she just talked about? >> right. the gym part was easy. that's the icing on the cake. but the thing for me was the actual program, getting in and doing what she told >> i think the one thing that when people see stuff where it's like hey, you can lose weight, people think i'm going to hate this whole process. it's going to be -- i'm going to be starving, miserable. were you starving and miserable? >> no, not at all. it was easy. >> you were see can results? >> yes. usually what we'll hear when people decide they want to find out if i can help them, i have to have an evaluation with you
i can't do it over the phone. i really need to sit with you and figure out what's been stopping you. but when we start applying the factors that are stopping you from getting to where you want to be, we incorporate it in your lifestyle, so derrick liked working out so we kept that in for him. not everybody does. >> nor do they have to. >> they don't have to. so now he was able to work out just as hard as he always did but he wasn't hungry and wasn't craving and he was getting what he wanted, which was seeing results from his hard effort in the nothing is more frustrating than working so hard and seeing little change. >> what has been the best part of the transformation? i'm really happy for you, i am. when you see somebody who is able to make a change -- >> i feel it -- i feel good in my skin. it's been so long since i was able to actually be comfortable being me. >> beyond happy for you. i know there is a special offer
evaluation. tell us about it. >> i have to actually sit with you personally to see if i can help you because not everybody has these issues. normally it's a $50 fee. if they mention they saw it on "the morning blend" i'll reduce it to $19 evaluation. >> fantastic. congratulations. that is so cool. i'm proud of you. it's great having you. >> thanks for helping people achieve their goals. like dr. nash mentioned, don't forget if you say you saw it on "the morning blend" your standard consultation fee will be only $19. it's usually $50. dr. nash's office is located on horizon ridge parkway. for more information give her office a call or visit her website. >> i need to see the shirtless pic after. next time. stick with us. more to come on the blend in just minutes.
it's no secret i absolutely love my dogs. if you're like plea you want the best for your pet. ville verde is here to give your animal first class care. >> here is dr. jonathon snead, owner of valle verde animal hospital. we've had you on before. what sets you aside from all the other practices in town? >> well, valle verde we believe in boutique style animal hospital. we provide the best amount of care at the lowest cost and lowest volume. when you come in you spend as much time with the doctor as you
answered. when you leave you are guaranteed that you understand what's going on before you leave that hospital. so we just love the client education. we love giving back to the community. that's what makes us different. >> that's awesome. >> i appreciate that, because i've been into some larger -- you get one different person at the desk, one person walks you back to the room, then you see two people in the room, and i am so protective of my pet one-on-one communication. >> and that's what we pride ourselves on. not only that, but being there for the life of the pet. not going and seeing a different doctor, not having your doctor move to a different state. each time you go in, you're going to see the same person. you're going to see the same veterinarian. that means a lot to us. >> what are your specialties or for take in medicine? >> for me in medicine i love surgery. i laugh because i love surgery. i love surgery. we can go in there and fix
i love internal medicine, but surgery is my one love. we do see exotics, as well. me, i'm a big exotics person. i love snakes. i love bearded dragons. those are my two favorites. but we love -- we love exotics, and surgery is my number one specialty. >> wow, i -- i didn't know you had exotic animals come in. >> people bring in their snakes for a check up? >> and they say? >> it can be different things. they can have some of the same problems we would have. if you see rats, they can bite the snake and cause abscesses. >> no way. >> so while they're trying to constrict, bite them on their belly, boom. they got an abscess. >> that is unique indigestion. >> yup. that's a. s. >> what other kind of exotic animals have you had? >> we had argentina iguana.
one time i saw a beta fish. >> what was wrong with the fish? >> the fish was actually sick. it wasn't eating for two weeks. just come to find out the water temperature was too low. comes down to exotics. that's why it's so important for us to have communication, because exotics are about how you take care of them at home, the right heat source, humidity. we're trying to create an artificial environment for these guys that they don't normally live on. >> go back to the fake ones. >> they always die. >> they do. they require a very specific environment. >> yes, ma'am. >> this is so interesting. you said you love surgery. i know there has been a lot of advances in veterinary surgery in the last ten years. what is exciting that you couldn't have done a decade or two ago? >> honestly, for me one of the best things that i've seen and that we've had the opportunity
and removing foreign bodies without having to cut the belly. you're going in with a scope, you see everything, you grab it, pull it out. it's like a video game. you go in there and -- >> really complicated game. >> exactly. you say that jokingly but when they eat certain things it's hard to grip it and grab it and it will slide off. but that's why it's so important to make sure that they aren't eating legos. >> can we talk about the craziest an animal's stomach? >> oh, no. >> yeah. so there was a kitty that had swallowed a sexual -- >> i knew it. >> device. >> and it blocked up the intestinal track so we had to remove it. >> do you have something a little more pg to tell us? >> yes. the next thing is underwear. the interesting thing when we took the underwear out and
wasn't the right size. >> no. >> no! >> needless to say we had the police there and everything like that. >> no kidding. >> it was a little extreme. >> there is a great special going on there. >> yes. we have the $149 dental special, which includes blood work, and includes the physical exam, the anesthesia, also includes the we also are offering the free exams for second opinions. >> awesome. >> second opinions on surgery, second opinions on medical cases, pancreatitis. >> you always give free consultations? >> if you're yelp, you can get the free consultation. we have a $200 voucher on yelp.

welcome back to "the morning blend." for the next few weeks students are learning something many adults haven't answered. >> here to tell us is michelle jackson, president of junior achievement of southern nevada. good morning, michelle. we are very excited by this idea. tell us about your junior achievement and your mission. >> we focus on teaching students in three critical areas, in our opinion, and that is how to be smart with their money and credit, how to be ready to join the workforce and how to think like business people or entrepreneurs. and finance park is one of over 20 programs that we offer. and we use this program to reach eighth graders by allowing them to become an adult for the day.
is given to them. it's all randomly assigned. and the students come in with 1t they've had in the classroom and get to implement it in a real life scenario. so the life scenario that they're given is random. they don't get to choose. they find out how old they are, if they are married, if they are kids, how much money they make, what education they have to they have and they have to take that and build a one month balanced budget over 24 categories that. >> brilliant. generally here is how we learn about finances. we go out of school, make vicious mistakes, and we learn maybe not to make those mistakes. we're trying to stop the mistakes from happening in the first place. how do you select the schools to take part? >> junior achievement has schools with he work with on a regular basis in a feeder
many of the schools that we're in have high, free and reduced lunch rates, which means the kids are coming from areas of our community that are a little less privileged. we work with private school, as well. but primarily we are just trying to fill up the days that we have so that we can reach as many kids as possible while we're open. >> it's such a neat idea to give kids a hands on practical experience. it's one thing to sit there and read it in a book, right? paper and say this is you, go for it. >> it's not a solving for x thing. this is solving for this person and their specific situation. >> yes. >> makes it more real. >> and what ends up happening the students have their own budget in their life scenario that they're managing, but they're at a table with other kids that have different life scenarios, so you have one student that only graduated from
another making $100,000 and they're single, and they can get the porshe. >> notice the $100,000 they're never driving the corolla, perhaps. >> no. >> we understand you would like to grow the program. and also that people can actually come down and be part of the -- >> we need 15 to 20 every day. the finance park is open. we open on october 12th. every day that kids are in clark county schools we have children in the park. so we have a lot of individuals that come volunteer their time. we have company that will adopt a day at finance park and their whole team comes down. and it's such an easy ask for volunteering, because you show up that morning about an hour before the students arrive. we train you, which is really
you got your group of six to eight eighth graders that you're going to hang out with for the next four hours, and you're going through the life scenario with them, helping them build their budget, asking the important questions like hey, did you learn child care costs this much? >> i'm learning it costs a lot. >> i bet your volunteers are like this is a good reminder. >> yes. exactly. >> we actually have a surprise for you. we have a gentleman who very much. the general manager, tom porter. >> good morning, michelle. always great to see you. >> what's -- >> we have cardboard, on behalf of the scripps foundation we would like to kick in $1,500. >> wow. >> for junior achievement. >> oh, my gosh. this is amazing. >> thank you.
you need funding to continue the program. >> definitely. thank you so much. >> you obviously are the money guy here at channel 13. you learned a thing or two about balancing a budget. what makes you gravitate towards junior achievement? >> i have two teenagers and i'm fortunate to be able to talk to them about money a lot. and i think everybody should have that opportunity. i think we're blessed to have people in our community like junior achievement that invest in making finance. and i think everybody should have that opportunity. i'm glad that the foundation helped. so we're glad that we can be here for you. >> thank you very much. >> and what does this mean for you, this money? >> you know, it costs junior achievement about $50 per student to go through finance park. that includes a curriculum, transportation, getting the kids down to the park, feeding our volunteers while they're there.
students. >> 300. you tell me. there we go. >> okay. >> i think shawn and i need to come down. >> thank you so much. >> thank you for joining us. >> glad to be here. >> thanks, michelle. capital one and junior achievement finance park runs through d it's from 9:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. to find out more about it and the great work
